Kevin




Kevin at 7 3/4. After wondering if Kevin would ever become a reader, he now reads all the time. CALVIN AND HOBBES is his favorite and when I asked him if he got all the stuff in the strips, he said it didn't bother him when he didn't. He also enjoys reading all the chapter books for kids his age.  In school, he is reading WHITE FANG and studying Greek Myths.

He is big on board games and has all the ones from my childhood. He especially likes Monopoly, Clue and Life. Not that he doesn't also like games he can play on a computer. He
and his two best friends are writing a book-one does the pictures, one does the physical writing and Kevin comes up with the ideas.

He takes tennis lessons, plays hockey, takes swimming lesson and is in the chess club. But NINJA TURTLES is still a favorite with Batman running a close second. He is an awfully nice kid. How lucky we are.

The influence of grandparents on grand children is huge! You're part of Kevin's success.

How wonderful, Patti. I still remember years ago when my son had problems learning to read. I think he was 7 when he just instantaneously could read, and from then on read all the time. Of course, we did read to him a lot and continued to do that for years. This is a very special time in his life (and yours).

What a great kid, Patti! He's turning out terrific, and he's lucky to have such wonderful grandparents.
